When you can drip yourself in gold
sequins, wear a Christmas decoration as a head piece that looks *very* painful
(like headache inducing) and perch yourself daintily on the edge of a car
without falling off while wearing a dead animal but make everyone believe itsfaux daahhhhling then
you’ve got life figured out.
Chapters: 1/3 Fandom: Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Rating: Mature Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply Relationships: Phryne Fisher/Jack Robinson/Original Characters Characters: Phryne Fisher, Jack Robinson, Original Characters Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Vampire, Military Backstory, Backstory, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence Summary:
Jack Robinson’s past and his future converge in the Autumn of 1929. He has a critical decision to make. Will he follow the night, or wait for the sun? A bit of speculation on why we know so little about our Detective Inspector’s past and the month between Blood at the Wheel and Juana the Mad. Who doesn’t love a bit of the supernatural in October?
So this was supposed to be fun on the high seas with Captain Phryne Fisher of La Belle Dame and her “hostage” (who is really an undercover British Naval agent) Lieutenant Jack Robinson. Somehow, what was supposed to be a short little foray into life (and sex) aboard ship turned into something unexpectedly bigger. I’m a little sorry about that, actually! I was looking forward to fluff! Anyway, if you want to read the beginning of this piratey saga, check out Chapter 2 of Eternally Phryne and Jack.
For @jeneenp on her birthday - it’s not the gorgeous, lyrical prose that you write, my dear, but I hope it helps make your birthday happy! ♥
It is the marvelous @jeneenp‘s birthday! I’m afraid the universe was out of naked Jack Robinsons, so you get fic instead. I consider myself immensely lucky to count you as a friend, fandom and otherwise. Many happy returns of the day!
“Miss Fisher is that rare fictional example of what life can be like for women who chose not to get married and/or have children — and how that alternative can be just as fulfilling.
This isn’t a story about a spinster finding love later in life and finally getting the traditional family she needs and deserves. This is a story about a sexually-liberated, vibrant, empathetic woman who has a wonderful family and community of her own making.
Phryne is not someone to be pitied. She is one of the most alive characters on TV — a master detective who speaks multiple languages, knows martial arts, and can fly an airplane. Miss Fisher is competency porn at its most addictive, and its main character is a new, much-needed kind of archetype.”
